'Real Housewives' Bethenny Frankel: Childbirth is 'less painful' than Kelly, Jill is no longer in her life

In fact, the newlywed and mom of nearly a month admits she prefers the rigors of childbirth to the traumatic trip to St. John's in which Kelly Bensimon alienated the other vacationing housewives with her erratic behavior.

"By far St. [John's was worse] and I'm not just saying it for effect," Frankel tells the press on a call Thursday (June 3) to promote her new show "Bethenny Getting Married?" "The C-section was less painful to me than Kelly. It was horrendous. Horrendous."

During that trip, Frankel, along with Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan decided that Bensimon had a nervous breakdown and that trying to reason with her was fruitless since she wasn't in her right mind. Bensimon, on the other hand, saw the situation differently and even filmed an anti-bullying PSA, a reaction that's not really that surprising considering her past unpredictability.
